Abstract

There seems to be a shift in today’s contents of Cilokaq song lyrics which previously addressed, advice, satires, and protests to reality. To prove this hypothesis, this article analyzed five current Cilokaq song lyrics (i.e., “Penganten Burung”, “Bangkol”, “Zubaedah”, “Berugak Elen”, and “Putri Mandalika”) which have been very popular from around 2019 to 2020. A descriptive qualitative analysis through Gadamer’s hermeneutics theory explores the works’ socio-cultural and historical context in understanding (verstehen) the contents. Four main themes of expressions of sadness, women’s helplessness, expression of admiration, and lessons of life are found to describe the conditions of the Sasak people, particularly, the Sasak women in today’s society. The findings indicate a shift of the previous common contents of Cilokaq lyrics following cultural alterations in time, space, and needs.
